If it's for a street car I'd put it a place that will make it easy to see even if you're not looking for it like right next to your speedo or within your normal scan. If it's not meant to be a shifting prompt I feel it's less important than a water temp. or an oil pressure guage for everyday driving especially with an automatic.1Mean318 said:It's for a street car, i just can't seem to find a place where i'd like it. tnku
Obviously right in front of you is the most ideal spot. For myself however, I'm builing a sleeper, and have gone to alot of trouble to make my car look "slow". A big tach sitting on the dash or steering column would kill that for me. As I said above with a good shift light I can still shift exactly when I'm supposed to. Unless you're looking inside the car closely you'll never see my tachthebankerstoy said:I like my tach in my forward line of sight, so I don't have to take my eyes off of the road or race track to see it. I use the AutoMeter Monster tach with the removeable chips on the shift light and I really like it on my Coronet. As mentioned above, a tach isn't very useful if you can't see it at a quick glance.
